By Their Fruits – Don R. Patton

Jesus taught that one way we can see under the sheepskin camouflage of “ravenous wolves” is to evaluate the fruits of their teaching.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “So then, you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-20)

Of course the wolves don’t appreciate anyone “blowing their cover” and they howl when their bad fruit is revealed. For example, the current movie, “Expelled” illuminates the contributing relationship between Darwin and Nazis. The evolutionists are screaming.

Expelled’s inflammatory implication that Darwin and the science of evolution “led to” eugenics, Nazis, and Stalinism is deeply offensive and detrimental to public discussion and understanding.

Scientific American editor John Rennie describes this connection as “heavy-handed.” In Reuters, Frank Scheck calls it “truly offensive.”

Others, acknowledge that the Darwin/Nazis relationship is obvious. Jack Cashill, an Emmy-award winning writer and with a Ph.D. in American Studies from Purdue, said “If anything, Stein and the makers of ‘Expelled’ understate this historically irrefutable link…” (Worldnetdaily)

The late Stephen J. Gould of Harvard was one of the world’s leading defenders of Darwinism. Nevertheless he acknowledged, “Biological arguments for racism may have been common before 1850, but they increased by orders of magnitude following the acceptance of evolutionary theory.” (Ontogeny and Phylogeny, pp.127-128)

Richard Weikart, Professor of History The University of California, wrote an article for the The American Spectator (4/16/2008) to clarify the relationship between “Darwin and the Nazis.” He listed six principles embedded in Darwin’s world view that cheapen the value of human life, then said, “They, in turn, strongly influenced Hitler.” He added, “…some of the ideas being promoted today by prominent Darwinists in the name of Darwinism have an eerily similar ring to the ideologies that eroded respect for human life in the pre-Nazi era.”

In the movie, Ben Stein reads a chilling passage from Darwin.

“With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick, thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. Hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.” (The Descent of Man)

The tree of Darwinism has produced much fruit. Despite loud protestations from the peddlers, fruit inspectors know this fruit stinks. Remember, Jesus said this is one way to know the tree is bad.
